Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
When Dr. Stein was a child, she had a very bad dental experience, but there was a silver lining, thankfully. As a result, she was brought to her new dentist, who was absolutely amazing! They were very patient and kind, always explaining their work clearly, and these visits ignited her interest in oral healthcare. At the age of 10, she told her parents that she thought dentistry was cool and she wanted to become a dentist too – and the rest, they say, is history.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Stein completed both her undergraduate Masters degrees at Texas A&M, and her doctorate at Baylor College of Dentistry/Texas A&M College of Dentistry – in fact, she’s a first-generation college student! During dental school, she took as many courses as possible to expand her clinical knowledge, studying iTero, Invisalign, athletic mouthguards, interdisciplinary treatment planning, and much more. To this day, she attends advanced trainings in pharmacology and endodontic treatment to further build on her expertise. She is also certified in Invisalign and nitrous oxide. She is currently a member of the following organizations:
- Dallas County Dental Society
- American Dental Association
- Texas Dental Association
Outside of the Dental Field, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Stein and her husband currently live in Wylie with their two dogs Wally and Hazel. In her spare time away from the office, she enjoys traveling, exploring new places, hiking, hanging out with her pups, and running in obstacle course races with her husband. Cooking is also a passion of hers, and you can usually find her trying out a new recipe almost every single day.
